The thrust, yes, but not the whole of it.  All right, this was a hobby-
horse of mine, but we did agree to consider adding new intrinsics if
that made the withdrawal significantly less difficult for any users of
part 2.  If John has done the work, we should consider his experience,
and either put a minor work item on the back burner, or say definitely
that no action is needed and kill the matter dead.
